Windows 8 Review

Windows 8 Review

I have a confession to make: I never tried the Windows 8 consumer preview. You see, I’ve been a lifelong Windows user (I can remember my parents making a big deal out of our switch to Windows 3.1), and as a lifelong Windows user, I’ve been burned plenty of times in the past. Most recently, this happened with Windows Vista, so when Windows 7 came along, I decided that it was the only Windows version I needed for the foreseeable future. Sure, I watched plenty of videos and read plenty of articles about Windows 8, but none of those convinced me that OS was something I needed to have on my machine. Yet here I am, reviewing Windows 8 for SlashGear. Can Microsoft’s latest version of the OS persuade this stubborn Windows 7 user that the grass really is greener on the other side? Read on to find out.

AT&T LG Optimus G Review

AT&T LG Optimus G Review

With the LG Optimus G, this OEM brings on its most powerful device by a long shot, with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor inside and a 4.7-inch TrueHD IPS+ LCD display up front, this running on AT&T's 4G LTE network here in the USA. What we're seeing here is a device that's ever so slightly confused in its identity - with more power than it knows what to do with in a device that looks and feels fabulous, but is just a bit bigger and more slippery than a normal-sized human being will be comfortable holding. Perhaps this combination of looks and processing power are enough to convince us that LG has suddenly become as much of a top-tier contender in the USA as Samsung and Apple?

Amazon Kindle Fire HD review

Amazon Kindle Fire HD review

Last year Amazon entered the tablet and hardware market on an entirely different level with their Kindle Fire tablet.

Everything you didn't like about the original (including that Playbook styling) has been improved for round two so lets take a look and see how it does.

iPhone 5 Review

iPhone 5 Review

Apple's iPhone 5 has a lot to live up to. Its predecessor set sales records; its original ancestor changed the smartphone industry immeasurably. In the five years since the first iPhone, Apple's smartphones have taken the company's value sky-high, and made it a star performer in an otherwise laboring tech segment. In question: could the iPhone 5 shift the game ahead once again, while still retaining the essential DNA that makes iPhone users and developers so loyal to the platform? With competition surging, a bigger, faster, and bolder iPhone steps into the fray. Read on for our full iPhone 5 review to see if it can live up to those expectations.

Samsung Galaxy S III Review

Samsung Galaxy S III Review

If there's such a thing as heritage in the relatively fledgling world of smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S III has it. Seldom does a phone - at least, one not wearing an Apple logo - arrive to so many expectations, and this time around Samsung even managed to match its Cupertino rival for pre-launch hype, rumor and intrigue. If the original Galaxy S convinced us Samsung could indeed be a top-tier player, and the Galaxy S II played an instrumental role in overshadowing the rest of the Android ecosystem, then we probably won't be satisfied until the Galaxy S III trounces every other handset on the market. The Korean firm has the ambition, certainly, but does it have the device to do it? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Samsung Focus 2 Review

Samsung Focus 2 Review

AT&T has no shortage of value-priced phones, and just lately, a pretty good selection of 4G LTE devices as well. But the two haven't crossed over much yet, and the ranks of Windows Phone 7 devices are a little slim as well. Happily, all three of these categories can add the Samsung Focus 2, which goes on sale starting today for $49.99 with a two-year contract. Is it worth your hard-earned greenbacks? Let's find out.

HTC Titan II Review

HTC Titan II Review

Over at AT&T you've got two giant choices for hero phones if you want to run with Windows Phone Mango - the Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC Titan II. Your choices will be based on what you like the phone's hardware to look like, how nice the camera is, and how fabulous the software runs on either device. As it turns out, HTC may have created a silent hit here in the face of the massively promoted Nokia device - will it survive a secondhand mention?

HTC One X Review

HTC One X Review

HTC needed to hit reset on its smartphone strategy. Lulled, perhaps, by several years of leading the Android device market, 2011 brought an incredibly strong push by Samsung and a growing mismatch between the agile software users desired and the bloated, over-stylized interface of HTC Sense. The HTC One X - and the One Series it leads - is the first of the company's attempt to reclaim its former position, a Tegra 3 toting powerhouse with a big screen, boastful camera and slick design. Still with the specter of the Samsung Galaxy S III on the near horizon, not to mention Apple's iPhone 5, the One X needs to do more than storm the spec sheet if it's to make the impact HTC requires. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 Review

BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 Review

At first glance, Porsche Design and BlackBerry might not make obvious bed-fellows. Still, the car firm's aesthetically-obsessed arm has taken up with Canada's finest, and the Porsche Design P'9981 is the result: maple syrup by way of Stuttgart. The less forgiving might draw comparisons between Porsche's legendary reluctance to diverge from its original 1963 car design, and BlackBerry's struggle to break free of its old OS. The frugal will likely be too busy gaping at the $2,350 price tag. So, Porsche or Pinto? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

ZTE Tania Preview

ZTE Tania Preview

ZTE isn't a name most smartphone shoppers would recognize, but the company has ambitions to change all that with the ZTE Tania. A 4.3-inch Windows Phone 7 device, the Tania aims to deliver not only all that Microsoft OS goodness you've come to love, but at a price that significantly undercuts rivals. The unit we've been using since last week is final hardware but non-final software, hence this being a preview and not a full review, but it's still enough to get an early take on what ZTE hopes will be a smartphone game-changer in more ways than one.
